Kevin Durant is the deadliest scorer in the NBA and a two-time NBA Finals MVP. For some reason, he still sometimes doesn’t get the credit he deserves — both as a teammate and generous human being. But KD is a great teammate — ask any Golden State Warrior — and a generous soul. For example, he’s not exactly in a great place right now but he still made sure to celebrate this accomplishment with a retweet.
“In 2001, @wheaties paid homage to a true champion and an icon by putting her on the cover of a Wheaties Box. Althea Gibson was the FIRST Black Woman to be on the box. Today, I am honored to be the second.” – @serenawilliams

Durant may be hurting right now, having suffered an injury that could keep him out an entire NBA season — and which threatens his explosiveness even upon return. But Durant still takes time to celebrate the accomplishments of others, like his friend Serena Williams.
Williams just became the second African American woman to appear on the iconic Wheaties box, a status even Durant has yet to achieve. His teammate Steph Curry has had a Wheaties box honor and lesser players like Kyrie Irving have received the icon nod, but unlike a lot of superstars Durant doesn’t see only what he’s missing — instead he’s also interested in celebrating Serena. Good on KD, as usual. (Sidenote: wait, this is Serena Williams’s first Wheaties box? Amazing.)
